Mattia Destro Joins Young Footballers at Nike Hypervenom Roma Knockout

With the stunning Ponte della Musica Armando Trovajoli in the background, Nike athlete Mattia Destro joined young footballers at the Nike Hypervenom Roma Knockout. A 3 versus 3 football tournament, the Nike Hypervenom Roma Knockout saw more than 400 young footballers from Roma Nord, Roma Centro and Roma Sud bid for the title of the most deadly striker in the capital.

Mattia Destro, striker for AS Roma, is part of the new generation of forwards that the Nike Hypervenom was developed for.

The Hypervenom boot features a NIKESKIN upper that fits to the foot to aid touch and control. In a game that is always changing, the Nike Football design team created the boot with feedback from top players including Neymar, Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who specifically need a boot that can help them create space quickly in and around the penalty area, and get their shot off from any angle.

During the development of the Hypervenom, players discussed the increased agility of opponents, referencing today's best defenders who are now as quick, agile and skilful as many of the world's best forwards.

The Nike Hypervenom is available now on
